That’s RIGHT, a double whammy, TWO nights of fun for the Fall Equinox! As you know, our Bingo night is its own special Bohemian varietal of home grown weirdness you might come to expect from LA’s very best gay bar in the land. Our prizes are both practical and impractical, all at the same time, and if you don’t know what I mean, then come experience it for yourself.
And this Wednesday, I shall teach you how to make squirrels and owls out of egg carton parts, because now it’s FALL! It really really is! I have been saving egg cartons for weeks! Squirrels and owls are what you need!
The earth has FINALLY tilted toward the Autumn season. Anyone harping on about how there aren’t actually any pumpkins in pumpkin lattes can just mellow out, because WE KNOW. We know it’s not real.
Ideally, one should bake a perfectly spiced pumpkin pie, then brew a hot piping coffee to go with it, sit on the veranda and pen a six page letter to a good friend while slowly savoring both treats. But instead, technology has developed a method for stuffing the coffee AND the pie into a drinkable fantasy where there is copious free time. The pumpkin spice latte is an impersonation of the leisure time you have in another universe. A pumpkin spice latte is borrowed existence, a pale imitation of a slower, calmer reality. When you sip a pumpkin spice latte, may it be a reminder that the time you so desire doing certain things does not, in fact, exist. You must carve out the time, like you carve a pumpkin, in order to focus your energies toward leisure, friends, lovers, bubble baths, bingo, crafts, Monday Night Football, and other choice endeavors.
And so sometimes you just have to embrace the artificial, so that you can have a seasonal hot beverage that calms your senses and tells you that at some point, maybe not now, but at some point, you will be having that pie and coffee.
See you at the Craft Table,
